I think he's gonna be real good honestly. Might end up having a more impactful career than his dad. Think he's got a better floor game than his pops.

He reminds me of Deng without the great defense (still adequate though) but with better athleticism.

I too wouldn't be surprised if Big Dog's kid has a better career, or at least a longer career. He is a lot more athletic and seems to be a better all around player, which should make him more impactful even though he doesn't have the silky midrange game.

I think he's got more perimeter ability and skill than deng. He could probably play the 2 in the nba.

It's possible it develops but I'd say his perimeter ability is more similar to Deng at this point then say a Paul George (who was another player I contemplated comparing him to).

Yeah his handle is fairly basic at the moment, not having a bunch of creative moves or change of direction, but you could say the exact same about George, who himself is better at the 3 because as a secondary handler he isn't great. I think Robinson is a good decision maker though, definitely better than deng and George at the same stage of development.

DX put up their McCollum video. I love this series.

Outside of the top 5 Burke and Robinson are the ones that interest me the most. In fact, I don't even like anyone else.

I'd be on board with getting Little Dog, just for the comedy of his pops being ripped off his ass at the BC for games. Every now and then they could interview him too. Maybe even be Jonny Macs replacement. Druggies are hilarious.

I'm glad to see quite a few people are down with drafting Little Dog, but if you guys all like him as much as it seems u do doesn't that mean he's a pretty good/complete player as a college freshman and therefore will move up draft boards quite a bit as we get closer to June and probably be out of reach without a trade up? And we're sure he's got the skillset to be a SG and the athleticism to not only guard NBA 2's but to -hopefully- also have the potential to eventually become a good/great defender at SG right?

I feel like a lot of it's sentimentality but he's clearly got pretty serious talent. We have to find a way to get him. Moar Dog.

A young core of Jennings, Little Dog, Harris, Henson and Sanders would be fun to watch.

I like seeing Kelly Olynyk on the honorable mention list. I wonder if he is a sure thing to declare. If he does declare, his redshirt last year would have been kind of a waste. If he comes back for his senior year, he'll be an absolute force.

Oladipo is a guy that might fall out of the lottery that would fit in with the Bucks. He can do everything on the defensive end and his shooting is vastly improved. Odds are slim he falls too far though if he does indeed not end up as a lottery selection.

DX update has Plumlee going 10 to Minnesota. That's a dream scenario for me in terms of laughing at Kahn.

Oladipo up to 21 from 28. Here we go...

Still have Trey Burke falling to us. That seems unlikely.
